Second night of Siberian-smoke sunsets, seen from West Seattle

Tonight, the photo’s by Jamie Kinney, from the second consecutive night with a pink/red-ball sunset whose cause is no longer a mystery – the National Weather Service pointed out a NASA update showing the plume of smoke crossing the Pacific from fires in Siberia.

    Nice sleuthing on the red-hue WSB!

      Just happened to see it go by on Facebook (which is a miracle given how FB only shows you a fraction of what’s posted by pages you follow). Wildlife photographer/writer Trileigh Tucker happened onto it there too and pointed it out, so if I hadn’t seen it, her tip would have pointed me there. I am too head-down to get a full take on world news most days so I hadn’t heard of the Siberian fires until now. 1,000+ homes gone, more than two dozen people killed, yikes.

    The video of drivers fleeing the fire is terrifying.

    Oh, so not just a poetic name after all. It really is caused by some from Siberia, who woulda thunk!

Sorry, comment time is over.
